We begin our toddler program at 15 months. The classroom’s theme represents the water element as the toddler thrives in a soothing environment. At this time our focus is to build secure healthy relationships between child, classmates, and teacher. We sing songs of lullabies and share stories of nursery rhymes. Developmental activities include block stacking, independent eating, and sand & water play.
At age two, children become very connected to the earth. They are close to the ground and start interacting with their environment through running, climbing and building. The element of this room is Earth and is represented by a sage green color. Developmental activities include gross motor skill development, self-exploration of motion, and potty training.
Our preschool classroom is centered around our children. Our goal is to lay a foundation for a lifetime of passionate learning. We have developed an environment that emphasizes responsibility and self-discipline. Busy and energetic energy fills the room as children jump, dance, climb, and interact with their peers. Children gain independence by dressing their clothes, setting the table, and organizing their tasks. In this classroom, learning is student directed and hands on with teacher’s guidance. Children are introduced to classic literature through story time and theme-based projects.
Pre-kindergartners learn creatively through their own questions, ideas, and explorations. Each child creates their own story that is to be shared with their peers. We provide developmental tools for children to express themselves creatively. In this room we prepare our preschooler for kindergarten. We do this by immersing our students with the task of writing in a meaningful and contextual way. By learning to write, children will learn to read.
Our full day kindergarten program nurtures children in a classroom setting. The room offers a classic kindergarten design with academic lessons demonstrated on a black board. The classroom offers a smaller child to teacher ratio allowing a more focused attention on academic development. The licensed kindergarten teacher follows standard state curriculum requirements with an emphasis on creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.
